Patriot K9s of Wisconsin

Patriot K9s of Wisconsin proudly provides training for U.S. Military Veterans and Shelter Dogs working together to combat the effects of  PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Military Sexual Incident (MSI).

Ready for change. Ready for growth. Ready to reclaim their lives.

The veterans who come to us and participate in our service dog training program have taken the first step and gotten to a place in their lives that they are ready – ready for change, ready for growth, ready to reclaim their lives. Along the journey, they become part of the Patriot K9s family for life. Most will return repeatedly in some form, to volunteer themselves, giving back so that others may receive the same opportunities and a chance for a better life that they themselves now have
